> you are exactly right, and luckily, it's already possible:

nice, I was just looking at it. sys_gui is just fresh, right?
isn't it really possible to make the changes apply automatically? if not,  
it's a step in the good direction, but it's still not really great.

Ah, a couple more issues I had somewhere (well, more like details, not  
really important): [or was there a feature request link somewhere? I only  
know the bug report one]

- dual screen compatibility. pd patches always open in the same position  
as before. but if using a dual screen, windows that were saved on the  
other screen always appear in the main screen once they're reopened (but  
the coordinates match). (I'm on xp, and my main screen on the right side,  
if that makes a difference)

- is it possible to give the coordinates for the pd window to appear?  
that's just a detail, but I get used to divide the screen in a certain way  
(also to make sure I'm always controling the console while having my  
patches + hdsp mixer open). everytime I open pd I have to drag the window  
to the corner of the screen
